Not all Chinese restaurants are created equal. We had a favorite in our neighborhood for years. Then they up and moved, or left, I don’t really know what happened.
All of the other Chinese places around here are no comparison to our favorite. When you get used to having a go to favorite and they’re just gone. You start craving that one thing you can’t have anymore.
So we started experimenting different recipes to see if we could come up with what was missing in our life. Our favorite Roast Pork and Garlic Sauce!

I love when those big picnic roasts go on sale, we’ll get an easy three or four meals out of a nice 10 lb roast. Here’s the recipe we used for the Pork Picnic Roast, but if you have a pork tenderloin or some boneless pork chops that would work good too.
Now I have to say that if my green onions look freakishly large it’s because they are.
I planted these from a few whites of a normal green onion in the spring, and these things just kept growing and growing.
I had to take a picture to show how huge this one green onion got. I didn’t measure it, but I’m pretty sure it’s getting close to three feet tall!
